My friend had a pintabian colt born almost 1 mth ago He had contracted front legs,over at the knees.He never has had any trouble with his mobility,was up & nursed on his own right after birth.She just figured wait & they'd straighten out with some time.Well they have relaxed some but now he has swellings of bilateral knees lower outer aspect.Like wind puff swelling,she says he is still running around & shows now signs of illness.She is pretty upset about his legs & hasn't seen aything like it before. She sent me pictures & I hadn't seen a baby with swellings like that but I went on the net & did find an article with pics that shows a baby with legs just the same.It was rupture of common digital extensor tendons.I haven't been able to find out much about treatment & prognosis.Hoping someone here may be able to share some info. I sent the info I found to my friend & hopes she can speak with a vet about him. So far I haven't been able to reach her over the long weekend here but i'm really concerned for the little guy.

I agree with Cathy. This is not something that can be diagnosed or treated over the internet, the foal needs to see a vet and probably should of been treated weeks ago.

I totally agree! it would have been seen if it was mine too.This foal may have seen a vet by now..., I'm hoping since our last speaking.I was thought if I could find info on the subject shed light on the problem to get him proper treatment.I'm sooo lucky to live in an area where there is alot of equine vets to choose.Not so for my friend, she is unfortunate in Living in a rural area she hasn't got option of real equine vets & also gets old farmer opinions on treating.
